Led by Niharika and held at Attakkalari Studios from 10 am to 1 pm on 2 weekends (14, 15, 21 & 22 September) this course on Counter Technique provides tools for body and mind to deal with the demanding dance practice of the 21st century. It is a movement system to help the dancer think about the dancing body, focusing on the process of incorporating information into action.
Niharika says: “Countertechnique allows me to discover more possibilities constantly, whilst giving me practical and helpful tools to keep me interested and independent in that process. Dancing continues to be a joyful exploration, where failure, fear and pain are removed from the situation, and replaced with choice. There is less pressure on my whole self, and more freedom to direct energy into exploring and playing.”
Born in Australia, Niharika Senapati is currently based in Melbourne (AUS). Niharika studied contemporary dance at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) in Perth, Australia. Since graduating, she has been performing works for company Chunky Move, working closely with the company’s artistic director Anouk van Dijk.
